I loved the b&w version, and I think I still prefer it - just. I'm still trying to work out why, when that blue is so wonderfully clean-looking.

Well I also saw the mono, but prefer the coloured version - so far its equal between the two options WinkWinkWinkWink
Its a great abstract in whichever version though SmileSmile

A nice abstract but i think it would be enhanced with a little more contrast.

Blues are nice, my advice remains the same as in the black and white picture. I think a tighter frame containing the curved buildings could be fun.
